A custom ATtiny programming shield for use with Arduino ISP
I covered programming an ATtiny with the Arduino ISP in the ProgrammingWithArduinoISP project.
Since I’ve been programming a few more ATtiny processors, and simplify the processing of programming an ATtiny with ArduinoISP, I wired up a strip of protoboard to serve as a custom programming shield. This is the layout I chose:
It’s designed to be snapped onto an Arduino UNO, lined up with GPIO digital pins 8-13.
It includes two LEDs on PB0 and PB1, which can be used for debugging/testing a program loaded on the ATtiny.
